Model reference adaptive control (MRAC) is widely used in linear system control areas, and Neural Networks (NN) is often used to extend MRAC to nonlinear areas. However, this kind of solution inherits some drawbacks of NN, including slow learning speed, weak generalization ability, local minima tendency, etc. Given these drawbacks, this paper attempts to use support vector regression (SVR) as a substitute of NN. In this approach, SVR is employed to compensate the nonlinear part of the plant. A stable controller-parameter adjustment mechanism is constructed by using the practical stability theory. Simulation results show that the proposed approach could reach desired performance.

Zeta converters are the fourth-order DC-DC converters capable of operating in both step-up and step-down modes and do not suffer from the polarity reversal problem. There are many applications which require a variable output voltage commanded by an external reference signal. So, the Zeta converters can be particularly useful for such applications. To achieve a Zeta converter with adjustable output voltage capable of following an external reference signal smoothly and accurately, there will be a need for a suitable control system. Since the Zeta converter model that is used in this paper is nonlinear, we propose a combination scheme of model reference adaptive control (MRAC) with neural networks (NN). In this paper, we propose and design a neural network adaptive model reference controller to control the output voltage of Zeta converter. Simulation results show the effectiveness of the proposed scheme for the Zeta converters with adjustable output voltage.
